Viña Castellano Estate Vineyards and Winery offers an intimate setting with tasting at the bar or bistro in their stone barrel cave. The friendly and passionate staff (which sometimes includes the family themselves) will walk you through the list of Spanish and Rhone wines along with encompassing a little family history.
Tasting is now being done by flights per State guidelines. This change assures that our pour spouts never touch a glass that is unclean. The $12 flight is equal to 1.5 glasses of wine and includes your choice of 4 wines. We do not care if you share a flight with another guest in your party. Many tasting partners pick 4 separate wines each and they share. If you purchase 2 bottles of wine, we waive one tasting/flight fee. (There may be a slight additional charge if you wish to taste special releases when they are available). Regardless of what you choose, the fee is waived if you decide to purchase two or more bottles.
CABANA BAR AT THE POND
Our Seasonal Cabana Bar by the Pond Opens on Mother’s Day and runs through September. There you can buy wine by the glass, Sangria, Wine Cocktails and build your own picnic with selections from our Picnic Tier Program. We have lots of tables situated by the water. Likewise you can sit at our island Gazebo, on the dock or at any of the Adirondack chairs sprinkled about the lawn. You can bring your own blanket if you wish and inquire about borrowing our picnic rounds for blanket picnics. We only ask that you stay on the pond side of our old apple tree. Grandma GG, lives onsite and we like to give her some privacy.
MUSIC UNDER THE STARS
July 10 will kick off our Saturday under the Stars extended hours. We will kick it off with Flamenco under the stars. We will keep the Cabana Bar open after hours and feature live music . We will have Spanish Guitarist Miquel Padilla at least twice a month but we will feature other local artists occasionally as well.
For $30 you can purchase a sampling of artisan Spanish meats and cheeses, along with tapenades, Marcona almonds, the family recipe herbed-olives and Dark Chocolate and sea salt covered almonds. Call to make a reservation. Food must be pre-ordered as it is catered. (If you have purchased this tasting on Groupon we will honor it past its expiration) Frequently we have some picnic snack items available for purchase onsite if you want to put together a spontaneous “Bistro Picnic”.
Outside food is no longer allowed in the cave, however, you may bring your own picnic to enjoy outside at our pond picnic area or at one of our 5 pavilions in the vineyard. These areas are more private.
Appointments are not necessary, however we encourage them for larger groups or if you wish to reserve a special table. Tables will be released after 15 minutes on busy days. To schedule a tasting appointment or contact us directly, at lisa.vinacastellano.com or 530-889-2855.
